With all the excitement surrounding The Expendables, it’s easy to lose sight of the other old school action movie team-up coming down the pike; Universal Soldier 3 featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren. The first photo of the two stars together has been released, and it strikes exactly the right balance of rugged machismo and unbridled homoeroticism that we’ve come to expect from the duo.
The one sour note in this touching reunion is the proposed title for the film; Universal Soldiers: The Next Generation. Are they pulling a Ghostbusters and introducing a fresh-faced batch of ‘lil Universal Soldiers to the mix? Unless we’re promised a full-on Van Damme/Lundgren make-out session to make up for it, I’ll wait for Command Performance to get my Lundgren fill. How does Universal Soldier 3 rank in your most anticipated action movies?
